Converting 3.x D&D to HERO: extra pathfinder classes

Rate this Entry
as said before, all content for samurai and ninja were added to the earlier entries for their pathfinder counterparts.


CAVALIER

Challenge: +1d6 RKA (15 active pts) link (-1/2) OAF(-1) no range (-1/2) concentration [1/2 DCV] (-1/4) only vs. challenged foe (-1/2) real cost: 4 pts

Demanding challenge: 3d6 drain DCV (30 active pts) link (-1/2) OAF(-1) no range (-1/2) concentration [1/2 DCV] (-1/4) only vs. challenged foe (-1/2) only for non-samurai attacks (-1/4) real cost: 7 pts

Orders: do upon request

why not all the mounted stuff? I don't do mounts. They complicate the game and they limit what can and can be done. Not super easy to have a mount in a dungeon. My suggestion to any person doing cavalier is either stick with just cavalier, do a samurai, or add the above to paladin

Spells


SUMMONER

Instead of summoning an eidolon as a separate entity, you BECOME the eidolon (like merge) when summoned.

Summon: Create as multiform (along with GM) Create with no more than 30 active points (150 CP with 25 pts of “new” complications (max)). All complications of summoner apply to multiform (a summoner who has enraged still can be enraged in multiform). Limitations include requires summon roll, OAF, incantations, gestures, and full phase, costs END to maintain (total of -3.0).

Spells:

The main reason I did this was because companions and "summon" are tricky enough things. They complicate things. I bet a summoner isn't doing too much personal combat anyway, just having his eidolon do the work. So this way, he does the work.

NOW, as is, summon is JUST like wild shape. But I am cool with that. However, as GM, the summoner is free to do ANYTHING with his summon, whereas a druid with wildshape is limited by animal, elemental, or vegetable.

WITCH

So that looks like it for "extra classes". Now we move onto the core 11. I will include 4E stuff (when it fits), pathfinder, archetypes, and everything in between for the different classes. Not ALL archetype stuff, just the interesting stuff.

So next time, barbarian, bard, and cleric
